Facility & Services

As a personal care home, The Roxborough Home for Women operates 24/7, providing private rooms, meals, laundry services, and light housekeeping for its residents. Our trained, professional staff administers all medications, assists the women with their daily personal needs, and participates in activities the Home provides. Our residents are independent, and our staff is here to assist when needed. (Please note: RHW is not categorized as an assisted living facility or nursing home.)


Most residents furnish their own rooms, bringing personal belongings and mementos, making their new home more comfortable and familiar. Our rooms are cable and telephone ready. We encourage visitors. Lovely indoor and outdoor porches are available as well as other areas to socialize. Guests are welcomed from 9 am to 9 pm, and residents are free to visit and take vacations with family or friends outside of the Home.
